people, including small business people, standing at president obama's side saying it's good for business to give the middle class their tax breaks. what are these republicans thinking over there? if i told you, if we're having an argument, that i'll give you 98% of what you want and you walk away from me, i say you're unreasonable. who gets 98% of what they want? no one in an argument. usually meet each other halfway, 50-50. we are giving the republicans 98% of what they want on the tax cuts, but they are holding the 98% hostage for their friends, the coch brothers, sheldon adderson, the billionaires. you know, that's wrong, and we had an election about it. this is a country of, by and for the people, not of, by and for the billionaires. and i am going to say to my republican friends -- and they are my friends. i have served with them for a long time. i have worked with them. what are you thinking? what are you doing? let me tell you one of the things they offered in their package. this is outrageous. they want to raise the age of medicare by two years. i cannot tell you, madam president

'll have to move. so this is obama 2.0. a much more engaged, a much more activist president. you series bringing a business community in, community leaders, small business, not for profit. he'll be much more engaged in this second term. >> morris, on this issue, are we just going to get something that just gets us through this period? because there are those who want to tie in a longer term debt strategy and solution. it seems if we do that, that will muddy the waters here short term. >> he what they need to do is c to an agreement on what they can agree on. the president said we should all be able to agree on this first 23 250,000 and then move to the next congress for something more comprehensive. there's never going to be a situation where you'll be able to swallow the whole pie. comprehensive tax reform is very hard and dealing with all the entitlements will be very hard. so i think the best thing to do is get something that gets us past the dead line and then come back to the table and get something more comprehensive done. >> when it comes down to it, are politicians, in their gut
